“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
Dr. Dale E. Turner
Dreams are a visionary creation of your imagination. Your dreams are the first step to developing a strongly desired goal or purpose. To live your life awake and aware, you must have a compelling dream to pull you towards your future. Each of us has had periods of our lives where things were all on autopilot and we became like zombies just going through the paces of our day. All of the clutter and distractions of daily survival keep us focused on the seemingly urgent but often unimportant tasks that drain much of our essence.
If you find yourself being drawn to play video games to shut off your mind, or working on crossword puzzles just to get them done, or eating without thinking, but not getting any real pleasure out of doing these activities, it is a sign that you need to regain your dreams. These kinds of activities are ways your subconscious mind tries to keep you busy, in a primal survival mode. Your “God mind” is not engaged.
Your “God mind” is that higher, immortal part of your consciousness where your dreams and purpose lives.
Take a moment right now to stop everything going on in your head and take a few deep breaths to clear your mind. Now close your eyes and listen to the sound of your thoughts at rest. Next, “look” around with your minds eye, and wander over to your dreams.
Dust off a few, and see if you can find one you can work on today. Maybe you will find a brand new one! “See” yourself taking your dream with you, as you come back to reality.
Now with your shiny dream in your pocket, take a look at the rest of your day or week. You should be able to find lots of to-do items that you no longer need or want to do, to free up time to pursue your new dream. This is your life, don’t just survive today, thrive today! At any age, no matter your circumstances, you can tap into your God mind for those “untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
